Animal Farm

Animal Farm - Russell Baker, George Orwell We're doomed, comrades.
Death Without Company  - Craig Johnson Better than the first book.
The Cold Dish - Craig Johnson Yay, I finished, yay!

Shadows in Zamboula & Other Tales of Conan

Shadows in Zamboula & Other Tales of Conan - Robert E. Howard Great ending!
The Working Class Foodies Cookbook: 100 Delicious Seasonal and Organic Recipes for Under $8 per Person - Rebecca Lando Okay. Her two main tips are make your own broth and go to farmer's markets, which aren't terribly new concepts. But I did like her writing style and the recipe for broth is simply and very tasty.

The Seven Sleuths' Club

The Seven Sleuths' Club - Carol Norton Very interesting book. Cross between Little Women and The Babysitters' Club.
Shake 'Em Up!: A Practical Handbook of Polite Drinking - Amy Stewart, Virginia Elliott, Phil D. Stong Delightfully olde-timey!
Secrets and Lords - Justine Elyot The heroine of this book was extremely stupid.

Murder Madness by Murray Leinster

Murder Madness by Murray Leinster - Murray Leinster Well that was pretty silly. And bad. Really really bad.
The Suicide Shop - Jean Teulé The Addams Family meets Amélie.
Lick - Kylie Scott Is this author's first language English? One wonders.
The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert Galbraith Okay, the mystery was kind of ridiculous. And the book really dragged in the middle. But the beginning and end were excellent.
Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist - Tim Federle Fun book. Not really the type of cocktail book you read for the recipes, but clever and definitely of interest to lit geeks.
Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson Honestly, Muppet Treasure Island is better. lol Seriously though...
The Salaryman's Wife - Sujata Massey Really really liked it—reminded me of an Elizabeth Peters mystery—but I guessed both who the murderer was and their motive a third of the way through the book.

The Wheel Spins

The Wheel Spins - Ethel Lina White I'm glad I read this, but the Hitchcock movie is a lot better.
